    What Autistic People Want the Public to know about Autism

    • We are people too
    • We want to be accepted, have people listen to us, have friends, be successful, and be given chances just like anyone else
    • Some of us cannot read verbal and social cues
    • Some of us appear shy
    • We tend to interpret things literally
    • Please understand us
    • There are older autistic people too
    • Flat non-verbal communication sometimes misinterpreted
    • We are born this way please stop trying to fix us
    • We frame things differently sometimes
    • Some want more original autistic characters in comic books
    • Media stereotypes us
    • Not necessarily good at math
